CIVIL WAR VETS PROTEST
Did Soldiers Barred From Opera
House at Milwaukee —To Complain
Against Their Removal to
Leavenworth, Kan.
Milwaukee, Aug. 10. —Locked doors
to the opera house at the Soldiers’
home balked Civil war veterans when
they gathered to hold a protest meet-_
ing against their removal to homes
at Leavenworth, Kan.; Danville, 111.,
and Hampton, Va., on orders from
Dayton. The veterans made no ef
fort to “break in,” as reports had it
they might, but sat around on the
steps of the opera house, reading pa
pers and waiting to see what would
happen. They were plain in their re
marks concerning the locking of the
doors,* and laid the halting of their
protest meeting to the officials at the
iiome, who, they charged, feared to
take any step which might be con
strued as offending the board of man
agers of the home at Dayton, O. A
meeting will be held in spite, of the
refusal of the authorities to use the
opera house, several of the veterans
declared, and the protest of the men
will be put in res:>i ion form so that
it can be forward m. to the President
and other authorities. Responsibility
for refusing the use of the structure
to the veterans was not admitted by
officers of the day, in the absence of
Governor Crumpton. Spurred by mes
sages of support from Senator Irvine
L. Lenroot, who informed William J.
Cary, county clerk that he had ap
pealed to the War department to have
the order of removal countermanded,
many of the aged veterans clicked
their heels and declared they would
remain at their Milwaukee home until
forcibly removed. The fight to pre
vent execution of the order is ex
pected to be carried to the floor of
the senate. Eighty-five members of
Eddie Lyons post, No. 5, of the Amer
ican Legion, Monday night supported
the protest of Civil war veterans at
the Soldiers’ home against removal to
another institution in a resolution to
be sent to Senators Lenroot and La
Collette.
Drive for Vet Relief Fund.
Sheboygan, Aug. 10. —A big state

World war, the money to be used ex
clusively for the veterans’ benefit

executive committee of the Wiscon
sin branch of the American Legion
here. The campaign for funds is in
line with the policy of the veterans to
be of service to each other.
Blaine in Indians’ War Dance.
Green Bay, Aug. 10. —Governor

at the fair grounds. The governor and
Mr. Hall took part in the dance, hop-*
ping about and keeping perfect time
to the tom toms which furnished the
music. Their act was applauded by
spectators and Indians.
Girls and Auto Plunge Into River.

YOU WILL NEVER wish to take another dose of
pills after having once used Chamberlain’s Tab
lets. They are easier and more pleasant to take,
more gentle and mild in their action and more reli
able. They leave the bowels in a natural condition,
while the use of pills jis often followed by severe
constipation, requiring a constant increase in the
dose. Every bottle guaranteed by your druggist.
